How long should startups be called startup? At which point should they stop using that word to define themselves?
It looks like some CEO founders forever like to hide behind “oh, but we are just a startup” in attempt to avoid responsibility for their incapability of leading the company.
It sounds like some kind of excuse not to expect too much of them, get financial mercy, excuses to buyers, fetch cheap labor, etc….
Company that has been 7 years around, has 50 employees and some funding should not be called startup anymore. Or?
